Dustin Johnson talks Paulina Gretzky romance ahead of US Open

Dustin Johnson is forever grateful for his biggest supporter, Paulina Gretzky.

“She’s a huge part of me, our family and my success,” the 36-year-old golfer recently told Golfweek. “She’s home with the kids, and has been great with that, and just has been a huge supporter for me, with everything I need to do. She understands everything it takes to get to where you want to be and the sacrifices you have to make. Having her dad as the greatest hockey player, she understands.”

Johnson continued, “You couldn’t ask for a better partner.”

Together since 2013, Johnson and Gretzky, 31, the daughter of Wayne Gretzky, share two young sons: Tatum, 5, and River, 3.

The couple’s kids celebrated Johnson’s recent Northern Trust win in August, with Tatum calling his dad the “best golfer.”

“The best thing in the world is having kids. We’re lucky to have two wonderful boys. It’s really been amazing, watching them grow up and enjoying the time. They get to travel with us a bunch. Tatum’s in kindergarten,” Johnson said.

“They’re getting a little older. And I can see a little of me and Paulina in both of them, just in their personalities and the things they do. It’s funny. There are times when you watch them and say, ‘Where in the heck did you learn that?’ and then you realize, oh man, it’s from me.”

The wins have been piling up for Johnson since golf’s pandemic return and he is the odds-on favorite for this week’s US Open, as he looks to add a second major to his impressive resume. Still, family remains his most prized possession.

“For me, golf was always the most important thing. And now, it’s Paulina and the kids. And they’ll always be the most important. Obviously, I love the game of golf, competing and playing. But they’re the most important thing,” Johnson said.

Ahead of the US Open at Winged Foot, Johnson celebrated his Tour Championship win with Gretzky on the greens in Atlanta, sealing the victory with a kiss.

“Just Didn’t Step Up”: Felix Auger-Aliassime Frustrated After Crashing Out of the 2020 French Open

"Just Didn't Step Up": Felix Auger-Aliassime Frustrated After Crashing Out of the 2020 French Open

Rising star Felix Auger-Aliassime has failed to make a mark at the 2020 French Open. The young Canadian was easily bested by his Japanese opponent Yoshihito Nishioka in three sets. Following the loss, Auger-Aliassime was frustrated with himself and piled all the blame on his poor display on Court nine. 

This is Felix Auger-Aliassime’s second senior appearance at Roland Garros. Moreover, this year is his main draw debut, which has unfortunately ended in a first-round defeat. Nishioka stormed to a 7-5, 6-3, 6-3 victory where he broke his opponent’s serve six times.

On the other hand, Felix Auger-Aliassime had 13 chances to break Nishioka, but succeeded only twice. After the game, the 20-year-old reflected on the loss and went a bit harsh on himself for failing to step up. 

“He played good. Also, I wasn’t good, and I could have been better on many of those opportunities,” Auger-Aliassime said. “I give him credit and I take responsibility for that because I just felt like there were too many times where I just didn’t step up and played a decent point.”

Felix Auger-Aliassime is just not sure why he failed to win against Nishioka 

Normally after a defeat, players try and find an explanation for it. The loss might be due to several factors. But when Auger-Aliassime was asked to reflect on it, he just couldn’t lock in on a factor due to which he gave away the defeat. 

“The issue wasn’t technically. The issue could have been mentally, tactically,” he said. “You always see what you could do better but when you’re in the moment you try your best. You try to win, but sometimes it’s not enough, you’re not good enough on the day.”

This is indeed a gut-wrenching loss for the youngster, who hoped that he would fare well at Paris this year. Felix Auger-Aliassime had his best grand slam result at the 2020 US Open this year, when he reached till the fourth round.

 However, he’s still struggling with clay, and the youngster is not reluctant to put forth the fact. Moreover, he did not impress in his RG preparation at the Italian Open or the German Open.  “It’s been a long time since I’ve played on clay, I haven’t had time to adjust and train,” he said.

“I could have done better, there was no reason. It’s obvious to everyone and myself that I haven’t been able to adapt and do what it takes to play better and win matches,” Felix Auger-Aliassime added. 

With a disappointing end to his French Open campaign, the Canadian sensation would hope to bounce back strong for the remainder of the ATP calendar.

“Need to Give Him the Chance”: Former Grand Slam Finalist Backs Andy Murray After Recent Backlash

"Need to Give Him the Chance": Former Grand Slam Finalist Backs Andy Murray After Recent Backlash

Former World No.1 Andy Murray faced a horror show at Roland Garros. The former world number one slipped to a straight-set defeat to three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka in the first round of French Open 2020. Post that, certain comments from Former Grand Slam winner Mats Wilander caused a major controversy.

Mats Wilander had accused Andy Murray of taking away opportunities from the young players by accepting a wild card at French Open 2020. Wilander said Murray was giving a “false sense of hope” of a successful return to his prime.

In response to Wilander’s comments, former Grand Slam finalist Alex Corretja asked people to give Murray a chance before passing judgments.

“I totally understand that Andy is trying to get back to his best, I’m sure he knows it will be very difficult, but you need to give him the chance to see if he at least feels better on the court, no matter if he wins slams again or not, and try to enjoy the rest of his career,” Corretja said.

Corretja further said that lack of match practice because of various circumstances hasn’t helped Murray. Hence, he shouldn’t be judged on his current performances.

“In my opinion, playing best-of-five on clay in these conditions after such a long time without playing matches, in two-and-a-half years where he hasn’t played much, is not a reference.”

Corretja had coached Andy Murray from 2008 to 2011. Back then, Murray was hitting his prime. However, hip replacement surgeries and the tennis break have made it very tough for Murray to replicate his peak. Moreover, as Corretja explained, lack of match practice pulls him further down.

Murray won his first Grand Slam match in two years at US Open 2020 but failed to pass the 2nd round.

Murray’s camp hasn’t given any hints of a retirement. Moreover, he has repeatedly expressed his happiness at being able to play tennis even when with his career-threatening surgeries.
